    This paper presents a brief introduction to the author's research focusing on assisted teleoperation through improved interfaces.
  • An approach for physiological motion compensation in robotic-assisted cardiac surgery 

    Avilés Rivero, Angélica Ivone; Sobrevilla Frisón, Pilar; Casals Gelpi, Alicia (2014-11-14)
    Article
    Open Access
    The lack of physiological motion compensation is a major problem in robotic-assisted cardiac surgery. Since the heart is beating while the surgeon carried out the procedure, dexterity of the surgeon’s and precision are ...
  • LTI ODE-valued neural networks
